The second day of New York Fashion Week brought the stunning Jason Wu spring/summer 2014 collection, which makes us ponder on how the designer every time manages to provide that much sophistication, femininity and grace! Although unlike the previous Jason Wu collections this one is more relaxed and more versatile, there are still those breathtaking dresses and gowns that promise to make you the princess on the red carpet!
The Jason Wu spring/summer 2014 rtw show opened with a line of glittery languid pieces, both dresses and separates that were meant to “let the body speak for itself”, as the designer stated backstage. Then there came silk shirtdresses and shirts that featured a transparent fabric on top with only silk pockets covering the intimate areas. And as we say transparencies, we see them a lot in other garments too, such as the crisp white flowing dresses, the dark blue embroidered chiffon dresses or skirts matched with chunky knitted sweaters.
Wu didn’t see spring 2014 bright or overwhelming and instead of busy prints and colors, he played a lot with white, calm sandy hues, tobaccos, pale beiges, blush tones, blacks and dark blues. There was no room for prints and patterns, since the delicate sequins and chiffon embroidery used were enough for making a statement.
Layering definitely had an important role at the Jason Wu spring/summer 2014 show. There were trench jackets worn over delicate sequined skirts or heavy knitted sweaters matched with skirts of the same style.
While the utilitarian casual chic was provided by the smart shorts, knee-length skirts and relaxed knits, the breathtaking Jason Wu gowns presented at the end of the show impressed most of all. There were glam mermaid dresses and delicate gowns that literally took the breath of the attendees away!
The looks at the Jason Wu spring/summer 2014 show were accessorized with oversized bags and strappy flat sandals, while sleek center part hair and a subtle makeup with smokey eyes finalized the overall smashing appearance!
